the latest news on port activity and arrests
Patricia Imani, Michael Cragan, and Jamie Hellerman were arrested outside of Fort Lewis early this morning (Sunday). The three were protesting the movement of Stryker vehicles through the Port of Tacoma.

Jamie Hellerman is asking that she not be bailed out, Michael Cragan would like to be bailed out if he's not released by Monday, and Patty Imani would like to be bailed/bonded (she can pay back bonds) if it is not a hardship.

Patty needs vegetarian food and is hypoglycemic and so she needs to eat often. Jamie and Michael both need vegan food. Please call Pierce County Jail ( (253) 798-4590 ) and demand that their dietary needs be met and that they be released immediately.
